Budget Lions?

The prices of Young Lion passes have increased by 75% in the space of a year, from €850 to €1550. Making the most inspiring festival increasingly more difficult to attend for young talent in the industry. That's a lot d'argent de poche. And we can’t declare our Cannes expenses, yet!

That’s why YoungDogs and RA*W are organizing a budget alternative of the great festival. Creative leaders will donate 15 minutes of their time to inspire young hungry creatives for a lifetime.

Budget Lions takes place on the 23th of June, the day after the Young Lions passes expire. Any cub who's hunger for knowledge and inspiration isn't stilled is welcome. Don't forget, it's BYORosé. We love the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. That's why we want to give every aspiring talent in our industry access to the inspiration they deserve. On a budget.
Let’s go!

* We do not have any liaisons what so ever to the Cannes Lions Festival. We’re not the organization of Cannes Lions.

YoungDogs Worldwide

It’s hard to make a name for yourself in the creative industry. To change that, two young creatives founded the YoungDogs in the Netherlands 25 years ago. Serving as the main stage for young creative talent.
Since then the Dutch YoungDogs have connected thousands of creatives to companies and agencies all around the world. Inspiring all of them to follow their dreams.

It’s time to share our knowledge. That is why we’re giving each country the tools to start their own, local YoungDogs program. Creating a worldwide network of YoungDogs.


As young and ambitious account or strategy talent you just need be able to quickly do your job and that’s it – no looking forward. However, the urge to develop ourselves, get inspired and gain knowledge remains.
RA*W arose from this need. Since early 2012, we organize sessions, workshops and masterclasses with one common goal; kicking talent development in the advertising industry into a higher gear. With constant curiosity, we look at the wonderful and idiotic things that happen in our industry.

We share our their experiences and learn from each other’s backgrounds and ambitions. By now, RA*W has turned into the ultimate advertising network of the future.
